J frame 357. I am not paranoid I just remember my Boy Scout motto of " Be Prepared"! No one ever plans to go to trouble or to have it come to them, so always being prepared means that should trouble come I will not have to ask that trouble to wait while I go in my house and get my gun!!
But wait, silly me! Maybe trouble will say hey go ahead and I will mow a couple of rounds of the yard while you go and get your gun. That must be how it will work in a polite society. I will come back and we will admire my gun and what a fine piece of craftsmanship that it is and I will then simply give it and my wallet to trouble. Oh darn, there was an accidental discharge and now I have a burning pain and I am bleeding. Trouble is not sure how his finger got onto the trigger and caused me such trauma, but thanks me for my donation, apologizes and leaves.
Now to reality. We just had an older couple pistol whipped, beaten and left for dead (they did not die) simply because it is their nature to help people. They both commented that they now will not answer the door to be helpful or help strangers along side the road and will be armed at all times. Morals and ethics are so skewed in this country that you never know when a wacko will appear. Be Prepared!!

Same firearm as what ever I'd selected to wear in general that day.
That's why I hire a yard guy. I cover him with an RRA M4 (semi) from the neighborhood ZOMBIES.

My dirty work carry is a little Taurus 58 UltraLite. carry in a Miami Classic or pancake. Open in heat of summer if not a lot of dirt flying. Conceal w/ cool weather or a lot of dirt flying. This thinng is easier to clean than a semi & rough treatment is OK here but not on my Rugers.
Carry 24-7 or guess right.

My normal carry gun (varies) plus my 3" M65 loader with bird shot. I have a NO TRESPASSING RULE for snakes (got a small copperhead IN the garage last week). If the mower can't get them, the SMITH will.

Freedom isn't free! Don't ever take it forgranted!
If my pants are on, my gun is on. I carry everywhere it's legal, including my home, business, and private property.
When I mow the lawn I'm armed. Usually open carry like normal.

I have a second job maintaining a few yards...I have been doing this for 16 years...it only took almost getting jacked by three rough looking guys in a commercial complex...I was all alone and they rolled up on me fast... and it was dusky dark... all I could do was pretend I had a gun and run for the truck... everytime I go out there is a NAA 32 in a leather pocket holster in my right front pocket..I tried carry my CW9 or a G39 but I get on and off my mower so much it was really uncomfortable... I never know the 32 is there... I keep a Ruger 22 mag Single six in the Dodge..had to use it last week on a moccasin in a customers yard... Robbie
I have a holster on the side of my mower....
